I have a 97 Crown victoria which I took to the dealer to replace the fuel filter and clean the fuel system. No complaint on quality of work.
July 2007 I purchased 4 Michelin Symmetry tires, had installed and paid a total of $410.68
August 29, 2007 I had the fuel pump replaced being charged a total of $849.62
I feel it is totally illogical that a fuel pump should be double the cost of 4 tires.
Also the design of parts and equipment are so labor intensive it makes it impossible for the average person to make even the simplest of repairs.
